26th April - 4th May
Sonorities Show-reel
     
 

The Sonorities Show-reel presents new audio-visual work in the Foyer of the Sonic Arts Research Centre. These works represent a renewed interest in the relationship between sound and image, extending beyond cinematic convention and exploring the limits of abstraction and representation. The works will be on display 1 hour before other SARC events.

    Mark Pilkington + Hopkinson - Jigsaw
     
    Venue : SARC
Admission : FREE
   
       
       
       
Jigsaw uses computer 3D objects mixed together with pre-recorded footage, and various natural sound objects to explore the way natural materials are represented synthetically within the digital world.   Audio and visual objects are controlled using a series of variables in a computer program in order to manipulate them until an aesthetically pleasing result is achieved, a process similar to the process of solving a Jigsaw puzzle.

    Ms Jo Thomas - Angel
         
    Venue : SARC
Admission : FREE
   
         
         
         
Angel is an exploration of sound and visual metaphors questioning the passing of time. The human body and the imagination are referenced closely together throughout this work as a means of exploring strange imaginary landscapes, fantasies of flight, timelessness and the extreme beauty of the human condition.

    Mario Verandi - Klangfilm
         
    Venue : SARC
Admission : FREE
   
         
         
         
The film Arbeiter verlassen die Fabrik ( Workers Leaving the Factory ) by Harun Farocki is the starting framework for the creation of this audio-visual piece. The original film was re-edited by Harun Farocki and Verandi in order to create a new compositional structure.

      Germán Toro-Pérez - El nudo (The Knot)
           
    Venue : SARC
Admission : FREE
   
         
         
         
El nudo is a view of the city of Bogotá. It reveals a superposition of five different layers by the Post Office Cowboys. These determine the urban structure of the city and show different stages of historical development. Each layer is being seen from the perspective of the symbolic person: The Man, The Bird, The Frog, The Dog and The Demon.

      Yasuhiro Rina Morinaga - Outside
           
    Venue : SARC
Admission : FREE
   
         
         
         
Outside presents an appreciation of nature in our lives through the idea of noise in minimal and cyclic aspects of natural phenomenon (the sound of a wave, the wind blowing, rain...). Outside stresses the significance of this noise as an element of rhythm and its place in music and in our lives.

    Paulo Chagas + Inge Kamps - The Journey
         
    Venue : SARC
Admission : FREE
   
         
         
         
This piece is conceived as an audiovisual journey. Sound and images are structured as independent layers and at the same time develop a close synchronism, which aims to create a unity of audio and visual perception. It is the first of a series of collaborative projects by composer Paulo Chagas and video artist Inge Kamps.
